"FF; Volume and Variety" is unquestionably my most celebrated release. For many years it was my most distributed tape. It captures my techniques and compositional verve at a real high. This tape uses sounds and voices by E. Oliva, Robert Ommundsen, Robert I Gillham, Barry Edgar Pilcher, Fendrums, Het Zweet, and Dog as Master. I wish I could objectively describe this tape, but I've heard it so much it's impossible.

swamp monster dances. yay.
This os another one that sounds like weird space creatures on another planet. The opening section suggests a weird swamp or something with swamp monsters waking up, and a nearby observer speaking in German. Can the monster swamp planet be as sad as it seems, he asks? Interesting use of treated voices and ambient synthscapes/textures and very primitive sounding percussion too. The swamp monsters can dance to it!

Yeah, it's different. A lot has been done with voices here and then f***ing around with them using pitches and frequency shifters. It doesn't really sound like it was released almost 10 years ago. Some dark ambient slaps against this and sometimes some harsh noise outbursts and there you have it. Unsettling and different is what I'd call this. Interesting release.

" FF; Volume and Variety " fantastic work, where a today's general fashion for an aesthetics of decomposition,
It is foreseen and masterful it is materialized almost 20 years ago. Very strong and powerful psychological composition directed on the most experienced student and the person able and wishing to perceive music from other foreshortening, and able though a few to rise above time.. Magnificent product!!
